Word of warning!


Recommended Posts

Do not get taken in by the cheap courses for BSL. Some websites advertise their courses priced at ridiculously low prices e.g marked down from £149.99 to £15.00 - but do not sign up to these courses. If you read through the specification of their course(s) and do not see it as being registered with Signature or iBSL then avoid like the plague.

I got taken in by the cheap pricing on one of the websites and after starting one of the courses I was disappointed to learn that it was nothing but useless PowerPoint slides and hardly any signing at all. Valuable lesson learnt regarding pricing and a reminder - "If its too good to be true...........".

Please be wary and if in doubt ask here :)

Hello Member, 

I am so sorry to hear that.  Unfortunately there many cheap BSL courses out there and not aligned with signature and iBSL and it also hard to find a reputable course delivery by an experience tutor.  Are you interesting in learning Level one BSL? If yes, I am happy to provide the information. 

Kind regards

    • Hello Im Harriet and i'm learning with my daughter Erika. We are learning BSL because my son has autism and is currently non verbal and we hope he will respond to signing.
    • Hi everyone, I'm hoping someone here can help me. I have written a play, a solo show, and there are a couple of sections in which I will be signing BSL. I completed a certifying basic BSL course, so I can sign, but these concepts are quite subtle and tricky (mainly about spirituality and religion, or certain specific actions such as 'stumbling'). I know some of them, found others online, but I still don't have all of them so I'm wondering whether anyone can send me in the right directi
    • Hi All, so I’ve had my hearing aid for approx. 1 year, started learning sign language a couple of weeks ago and seem to be getting on ok with the basics, I’m a gymnastics coach, personal trainer, I have a day job and I’m adult inclusive ice skater and I have two children who are also learning sign language with me so we can communicate if my hearing completely goes. 
    • Hi all, I thought I would answer the 'why?' question which I thought would be easier than it is! It made me think for sure! Learning BSL has for a long time been something I wanted to do and should have done a long time ago. As a youngster I spent time abroad and the friends I made at school didn't speak English and due to us being kids we just worked round it and communicated in our own version of gestures/signs. Over the months (I was the only English speaking kid there) we developed a pr
